North Face is one of the most popular apparel brands for both summer and winter wear. But the quality of North Face jackets shines especially in winter, where their comfort and warmth are next to unbeatable. So if you’ve been considering customizing North Face jackets with your business or college branding, you may be wondering what makes North Face jackets so warm. Here we look at the proven and innovative technology behind the North Face brand, and why their jackets are so warm.
What is ThermoBall?
A key component that makes The North Face Jackets so warm and cozy is their ThermoBall insulation technology. ThermoBall is made of a synthetic material called PrimaLoft. This is an eco-friendly alternative to down. The PrimaLoft material closely mimics down with small round clusters of synthetic fibers. These work to trap heat in small air pockets so that the jacket can hold in warmth. ThermoBall technology can keep the wearer insulated and warm even when it gets wet.
The North Face designs its ThermoBall technology material into baffles. This means that the jackets end up still feeling lightweight, comfortable, and slim while providing incredible warmth. North Face jackets can also easily be packed down for storage, with some styles even fitting into a compact zippered pocket, which is excellent for travelers and people on the go.
What is DryVent?
The North Face uses their DryVent fabric on many of their jackets and coats. DryVent is a fabric engineered to be both waterproof and windproof. DryVent jackets keep you warm and dry in even the harshest weather conditions. But the difference with DryVent fabric is that it still remains breathable so that you stay comfortable. Many other waterproof and windproof fabrics can leave you feeling as if you’re wearing little more than a plastic bag! But the breathability of Dryvent allows sweat and moisture to be wicked away from the skin to evaporate.
The 2 Layer DryVent fabric is a versatile option that can be used in many different garment types, while the DryVent 2.5 Layer construction is used in garments that will be lightweight and easily packed. The 2.5 Layer fabric is lined with a dry touch print that raises the fabric slightly away from the skin. This allows for faster evaporation, increased comfort, and greater breathability. The DryVent 3 Layer fabric is used for durable and high-performance garments, to be worn when the user will be engaged in more extreme activities.
What is Polartec?
The North Face Polartec Thermal Fabric is one of the most well-known fabrics from North Face. Polartec fabrics are made in many different textures and weights which means you can choose the right option for your environment, activity, and preference. For a high performance, high-loft option, the North Face Polartec Thermal Pro fabric is also available for more warmth and less weight.
The Polartec Classic Series is available in lightweight to heavyweight options. The Classic Polartec 100 weight fabric is the lightest option and is often used as a first layer of protection against the cold. The Polartec 200 series is midweight and versatile for different temperatures, while the Polartec 300 fabric is heavier, creating a thermal layer. No matter the weight, all options are breathable and comfortable.
